Album Notes

‘Spastik SOUL ORGAN-IC-zation’ is a music project started by ‘Quincy “HollydaZe” Cortez’ (keyboards / lead vocalist / writer) in 2000. First as a three piece outfit, playing a blend of raw Southern Soul, frenetic Northern Soul and pure Rock & Roll. After several line-up changes and some false starts, the ‘S.S.O.’ is now a full throttle entity, with Quincy and wife, and fellow creative cosmonaut, ‘Victoria’ “Kosmos HollydaZe” (‘exotic’ percussion, ‘kosmic’ keyboards, vocals and writing) at its core. With a “revolving door” musician policy akin to late sixties ‘Rock & Soul’ groups such as husband and wife duo ‘Delaney & Bonnie’, or ‘Joe Cocker’s Mad Dogs & Englishmen’. Friends lend a hand by picking up a lonely instrument, snapping photos or with just ol’ fashion support.

Dubbed, only half-jokingly, ‘Gutter Gospel’, the music is an eclectic gumbo of sonic sauces and soulful spices of diverse influences which combine chemically into the distinctive ‘spastik soulful organically raw’ and original fever pitch vocals that are “shouted, spat out and testified” and never sweetly sung.

Influences would mostly arrive via the music made roughly between the years of 1963-1969. As those years represent to us Rock, R & B, Soul, etc., most adventurous period. This era’s many sub-genre’s such as ‘Blue Eyed Soul’, ‘Mod’, ‘Country Soul’, ‘Garage’, ‘Psyche’, et al. form the foundation of the ‘S.S.O.’ aesthetic and sound. Self-contained groups like ‘The Young Rascals’, ‘The Band’, ‘Booker T. & The M.G.S.’ Distinct vocalists like ‘Eddie Hinton’, ‘James Carr’, and songwriters like ‘Dan Penn / Spooner-Oldman’, ‘Jones / Cropper’, ‘Cavaliere/Brigadi’, ‘Holland Dozier Holland’ are all essential ingredients in the final result of all the work (and play) devoted to our craft of soulful music making.

While on the topic of work and play, the ‘S.S.O.’ play when the spirit hits and never by appointment or schedule. Our home-base and rehearsal / recording HQ is simply our living room, our studio is a battery powered Toshiba cassette player. Our keyboard was bought on credit (and is still not paid in full), our gear was mostly treasures found amongst trash, our amps are forgotten leftovers from former acquaintances and our drums resemble a mad science project. Hopefully the originality, creative spirit, loving devotion and soulful care to creating this music, still comes across, despite lo'-budgets and lo'-fidelity.
